MAKING OF THE 2000AD PROG 1842 COVER!!!

 Hey guys, so this prog of 2000AD came out in stores and digitally online a couple of days ago.

The brief from The Mighty Tharg was something along the lines of "Defoe's steam car besieged by zombies!" though he acknowledged that we should try and make it different from this linked Aquila cover I did featuring Boudicca in her chariot, knocking down Romans.  Also, I was running short on time so tried to think of an idea that wouldn't involve me having to draw dozens of detailed zombies!

Here's the very rough idea I sent of the steam chariot bursting through a metaphorical zombie's teeth, which Tharg approved....
 Pencils....
 And finally inks.....
I say "finally", as this one time I unfortunately didn't have time to colour it myself, and so we got Dylan Teague on the colouring job.

Hope you like it! One more episode of Defoe to get done!

Awesome. I love seeing other artists (especially professionals) progress work - It is awesome for seeing ways to improve my own process. Thanks :)
